Many individuals dealing with personal injury matters wonder how much money to ask for when pursuing a claim. That's a very good question, but the answer is not simple.

The Bases of the Claim

Attorneys base how much money to ask for on the total medical bills, extent of the client's injuries, any future medical bills that clients can need, the amount of pain and suffering, how much damage was done to the vehicle, and various other factors in determining what the value of the claim is. A part of that question is often also whether there's a limit of how much we can ask for. In the State of Florida, those people that carry insurance on the bodily injury protection, there are certain limits. One person might have $10,000 worth of coverage; another person may have $100,000 worth of coverage, while another person might have $1,000,000 worth of coverage. It doesn't make sense to ask for the maximum all the time.

However, if you sustained a very serious injury and the policy limits are only $10,000, certainly we would ask for the full amount. If, however, you sustained minimal injury and the policy limits are $1,000,000, there is no use in demanding a million, because your claim would not be worth that much.

An attorney will help guide you through that process and ultimately give you the recommendation of what's an appropriate amount to ask for, not only so that you're taken seriously by the insurance company, but also so that you're fairly and adequately compensated.
